It’s interesting to see which domain names these Chinese ventilator companies use.
I’ve been reading a lot of news about Covid-19. Because of this infectious disease, demand for ventilators is skyrocketing and governments around the world are scrambling to purchase the equipment.
China is a major supplier of ventilators, and Daily China lists the following vendors as the top five Chinese ventilator brands: Mindray, Aeonmed, Comen, Amoul, and Superstar.
I was curious which domains these ventilator companies used. To be clear, my interest is similar to understanding other corporate domain decisions, and not in any way to take advantage of these companies.
By searching Baidu, I was able to find out their Chinese brands, and how they use the .com, .cn, and .com.cn domains. Here is the result.
|迈瑞(Mai Rui)||Mindray||Mindray.com||not resolve||forwards to Mindray.com|
|谊安(Yi An)||Aeonmed||Aeonmed.com||for sale||not resolve|
|科曼(Ke Man)||Comen||Comen.com||not resolve||different company|
|安保(An Bao)||Amoul||AmbulGroup.com||not resolve||not resolve|
|舒普思达(Shu Pu Si Da)||Superstar||Superstar-med.com||not resolve||not resolve|
What have I learned? Obviously, .com is the first choice for all these Chinese companies. Also, every one of them seems to have created an English brand first and then translated it to a Chinese brand. Interestingly, they don’t seem to care about .cn and .com.cn, which are popular in China.
